Saperas and Ausio review the structures of the sperm nuclear basic proteins (SNBPs) of tunicates, a critical bridge between the vertebrate arginine-rich protamines and the lysine-rich H1 histone subtypes characteristic of echinoderms.
Sperm nuclear basic proteins (SNBPs) are the chromosomal proteins that are found associated with DNA in sperm nuclei at the end of spermiogenesis.
